Born in Havana Cuba, Lazaro Numa is an accomplished Cuban trumpeter and composer with over 15 years’ international experience performing latin, jazz, classical and pop. He studied the trumpet at the Amadeo Roldan Conservatory of Music in Havana and left Cuba in 2008 to expand his international music career.
2016 was a memorable year for Lazaro, performing with grammy-winning artist Diego El Cigala at WOMADelaide Festival. He also toured with Chinese pop star David Tao in his Second to None tour, to packed stadiums across China.
Later that year Lazaro composed and recorded in Havana his debut album called "Mi Cuba" featuring special guest Manuel “Guajiro” Mirabal, a founding member of the Buena Vista Social Club. "Mi Cuba" features Lazaro's original compositions of traditional cuban rhythms.
Lazaro has performed with some of the best Cuban bands including the Afro-Cuban All-Stars, the Bar at Buena Vista Show and the Havana Meets Kingston Project. Now based in Adelaide Australia, he is regularly touring Australia and Asia performing his original music, as well as supporting other Australian and international music acts.
